The blue-green color results from small quantities of lead and water. Amazonite derives its name from the Amazon river, and was used extensively by the people of Egypt Mesopotamia, India and the Sudan. It is also referred to as the "stone of courage," others believing the stone to be named after the legendary Amazon women warriors.
Amazonite is credited for enhancing creative expression, aligning astral bodies, giving one a sense of unity with life, and improving self worth. It’s considered to be a soothing stone that offers confidence and works on the throat chakra. Amazonite is also called the "hope stone" by many, in the belief that it inspires confidence and hope.
